    Default Phoenix Park cavalier outing

    Now that the weather is improving... ... I thought it might be time to start thinking about our first ever Cavalier Talk cavalier day in the Phoenix Park. We could do this in late May or in June... any ideas of what day suits people best? I am guessing Sundays tend to be better than Saturdays for many.

    Also: ideas on what people would enjoy doing? We could do a group walk along the creek, or meet at the Papal Cross and do a walk from there. Maybe do a picnic?

    Any thoughts, Irish people? Of course if anyone else wants to plan their holidays around a visit to Ireland with their dogs this could be the time...

    This sounds like a great idea. Either walk sounds good with a picnic afterwards. I suppose Sunday would suit most people but I'd be easy with either.

    ... and friends of cavaliers are of course invited!! So Gavin won't have to rest a fancy dress outfit...

    Or go in disguise.

    Sounds fantastic. We would definitely be up for that whatever you decide to do. A walk and a picnic and play sounds fantastic. Oh and Karlin thanks very much for recommending Lisa and Taras dog training classes. We have been going a few weeks now and we all enjoy it very much and i have seen a lot of improvement in Joey.

    Sounds fantastic. I'd be very intrerested, as apart from the obvious reasons, Zola hasn't been socialising as much as she should due to her recovery from her patella surgery, and meeting a load of other cavaliers would be a great tonic for her.

    Angela which class are you in? Aren't their classes fun? I'm doing basic obedience with leo and he loves it. Though very hard to get him to stay; he always inches forward on his butt in anticipation of a treat... . he dsid this last week when he was the first demonstration and everybody laughed.

    Karlin we go to the Wednesday night 7.30 basic obedience class. There are no other cavaliers in our class but there are 3 that come into the class after us. Joey loves it but gets very over excited with all the other dogs there as he doesnt socialise with other dogs very often. Leos bum shuffling sounds so cute. Joey does that too. His whole body trembles with excitement!! They are such characters the cavaliers. Joey has certainly come out of his shell since we have been going. On the first night he was stuck to my feet and very qiet. Now he is getting a bit bold and barking in the direction of the boxers and mastivs The girls are just so helful so thanks again. Im really glad i made the move to enrol in the class.

    We'll have to publicise the cavalier outing to anyone with a cavalier too from the classes. The more the merrier!

    I am working on some fun activities for the day -- more info soon.

    Count me and Star in. Also I know three other cavaliers and their owners who would definitely come along. If you need help organising anything Karlin, let me know.

    We did that training course last year and Star absolutely loved it. Those girls really know their stuff. I always recommend it to every new dog owner I know.
